Sheriff Thomas J. Dougherty reports the arrest of an Ontario County resident on drug related charges after a traffic stop.
On September 5, 2019 at approximately 9:00 pm, Deputy Shawn Whitford was assigned to the Sheriff’s Operation Safe Interstate initiative when he stopped a vehicle on East Avon-Lima Road for a violation of the NYS Vehicle and Traffic Law that occurred on Interstate 390.
The operator of the vehicle was identified as David B. Hauck, age 55 from Naples NY. The Deputy Sheriff suspected that Hauck was involved in drug activity and conducted a roadside drug investigation.
The roadside investigation revealed that Hauck was in possession of crack cocaine. Hauck was arrested and charged with Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the 7th Degree along with violations of the Vehicle and Traffic Law. Hauck was turned over to Central Booking Deputies at the Livingston County Jail for processing and pre-arraignment detention.
Hauck was later arraigned at the Livingston County Centralized Arraignment Part (LC-CAP) at the Livingston County Jail before Town of North Dansville Justice David Werth. The Judge released Hauck on his own recognizance.
